We encourage our students to take part in live projects with industry partners. Recent student projects have included work with Top Man, Fat Face, Ted Baker, trend forecasting company Mudpie and design studio ilovedust, with students winning prizes and work placements as part of the projects.
We also receive regular guest speakers from the industry, with recent talks including Caryn Franklin (TV presenter and i-D editor), Alex Brownless (Artsthread), Hannah Wiltshire and Rachel Taylor (head designers of Fat Face) and Terry Mansfield (CEO, National Magazines).
The course has established links with the fashion industry and students are encouraged to participate in work experience during their final year. Past students have gained placements at Burberry, Gucci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lulu Guinness, New York Fashion Week, Sunday Times Style Magazine and ASOS magazine.
